We, as current Psychology students and former officers in the army, believe that we've all experienced the self discipline problem. At booster we aim to solve this problem with the help of the social-regulation theory. Basically it means that if someone (or a couple for that matter) is watching us and sharing our responsibility, we perform much better and achieve our goals much faster!

We are currently in touch with a strategic design partner for a specialized version of the app. This will provide us with in-depth understanding of people's habits and how to motivate them.

With your contribution we can put theory into practice and invest the funds in developing the app for iOS and Android. Moreover we will use your support to market our app world-wide.

We were born in Israel in a small beach town close to Tel-Aviv. As we grew up, every one of us found himself involved with the social environment around him. Each one of us has a record of management skills that developed  through our professional history.  

We are Computer Science and Psychology students at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the IDC in Herzelya, Israel. Our hobbies are music and surfing. 

Nowadays we work on the Booster app to help people achieve their goals along with their friends.

Risks and challenges

Like every project, Booster has it's challenges.

First, we must succeed in winning over people's hearts and getting their attention.

Second, as we gather more insight into people's behavior, we'll need to quickly find the the best solutions to motivate them using social regulation.

We feel that with your backing and feedback we can manage these risks and challenges, and build a groundbreaking product!
